Citrus Chickpea and Zucchini Patties with Herb Yogurt Dip

When you think that you have been too much of a carnivore lately, have a break and go vegetarian for at least one meal. Vegetarians and vegans claim how they have felt better after going meatless and it would be inspiring to take one step forward and give it a try. There's nothing better to go for something healthy and eat "plants" (as my daughter used to say) that are full of nutrients. Let's listen to our bodies sometimes and be thankful that we did after a fulfilling meal. My quick and easy meatless recipe is this Citrus Chickpea and Zucchini Patties with Herb Yogurt Dip. It has loads of flavors and healthy all the way through because they are baked in the oven.

The ingredients that you will be needing are basic and available everywhere. Zucchini, precooked canned or bottled chickpeas (or cook from scratch with the dried ones), fresh mint or other fresh mild herbs, organic lemons and clementines (or oranges but I find oranges too strong) are the protagonists in these patties. Don't expect anything close to meat patties because these are vegetables so they taste milder and slightly drier. Serve with a good dollop of Greek yogurt flavored with lemon and mint or look for a vegetable-based alternative if you are vegan. Then eat as is or sandwiched in between a couple of buns. Whatever your choice will be, enjoy your meatless patty option. Then give yourself a pat on the back for choosing healthy for this meal.
